AquaPen is a lightweight hand-held PAM fluorometer that is very convenient for quick, reliable, and easily repeatable measurements of photosynthetic parameters both in algal and cyanobacterial suspensions. AquaPen-C is equipped with blue and red LED emitters, optically filtered and precisely focused to deliver light intensities of up to 3,000 µmol.m-2.s-1 to measured suspensions. Blue excitation light is intended for chlorophyll excitation, i.e., for measuring chlorophyll fluorescence in algal cultures. Red-orange excitation light is intended for excitation through phycobilins and is suitable for measuring in cyanobacterial cultures. AquaPen-P is equipped with a single blue LED emitter (optionally red or white).
